Niantic has announced that on Saturday 21st May 2022, Alolan Geodude will be featured as the community day for May between 11am – 2pm Local time! As with all community days, this means Alolan Geodude will be appearing more frequently in the wild and if you’re lucky you may find yourself a shiny!



New Move Debut!

Making its Pokémon GO debut during this event will be the new fast attack ‘Rollout’, which can be obtained by evolving Alolan Graveler (The evolution of Geodude) into Alolan Golem during the event or up to two hours after. 


Community Day Research: A Rocky Road

For $1.00 (or the equivalent pricing in your local currency) you can gain access to the Alolan Geodude Community Day-Exclusive Special research story, A Rocky Road! 


Not only this, but you will be able to gift a Community Day ticket to a friend! Simply tap the special research ticket within the store and select “Gift” instead of the buy button!
